sneaking a cheeky Target selfie while waiting on some help in the bookcase aisle

starting my day with tea and this guy each morning

we're slowly but surely making progress on the nursery!

georgia is the snoozing-est dog ever

we've started taking active measures to keep enid out of the baby's bassinet haha!

pipkin thinks it's necessary to be on all of the pillows at once

when i'm home alone i eat like a toddler

i'm eyeball deep in mother's day sign orders and i'm almost caught up!

i had a day full of lounging in bed and reading the other day. win!

we took toby for a surprise froyo date the other day because he had been so good

baby flynn is supposed to be a leo so i made him a little constellation hanging for his room!

READING: Right now I'm in the middle of reading The Art of Possibility and so far I'm loving it. It has seriously opened my eyes to so many things. It's only a couple of bucks on Amazon! I had some folks ask for a review when it's all said and done so stay tuned for that once I finish!

WONDERING: How on earth I'm going to survive this yucky sinus infection or cold or whatever it is, without any medicine. This sickness hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday and I've spent the past 36 hours feeling like I'm going to die. I went to bed at 9:30 last night and from 11pm until 8am I was up every single hour. Finally the fever and headache were too much to bear at 4am so I took 2 Tylenol and settled back in to sleep. Luckily by the time I woke up at 5am my fever had broken and my headache subsided. But ugh, few things are grosser than waking up in a pool of your own sweat haha! This is the first time I've been sick while pregnant and boy oh boy, it is not fun!

FEELING THANKFUL: That everything with the baby is a-okay! I had my glucose test on Wednesday and I was convinced that I was going to fail it. I don't know why, but I was set on it. I was told that they would call me if my results were abnormal, but otherwise they'd just see me in 4 weeks. Well, I got the phone call the next day. I saw it was my doctor and I was like "NOOOO!" - but all fears were put to rest and I had passed. Thank goodness because I did not want to do a 3 hour test! Now I just need to stop reading so much about pre-eclampsia and things like that... I freak myself out!

EATING: lately I've wanted a fuji apple chicken salad from Panera for every single meal. We live like, an hour+ away from the closest Panera, so it's one of those things where I can't have it and that just makes me want it more, ya know? My stepdad drives 2 hours to work each way every day and he brought me one home earlier this week. I shouldn't admit how excited I was, but whatever. It was the best! haha

WATCHING: Probably entirely too much tv honestly. I was so set on canceling our cable for the Spring/Summer since we'll be outside so much, but of course as soon as one good tv show ends, another one starts up. I'm looking at you, Nurse Jackie! We've really taken a liking to Enlisted too (Chris Lowell, swoon!). Oh and Surviving Jack! And Veep. And, and, and! Haha Any good tv shows you can recommend?

WORKING ON: A plethora of Mother's Day sign orders! I was overwhelmed at the number of reservations I got when I opened them up on ~*sale. I've been trying to paint as many as my hands will allow every day, all the while keeping up with my custom orders, too. It's tough and my hands cramp up like crazy, but it's a good problem to have! I'm also sending out the very last batch of Kaelah's Closet orders today. I shipped about 40 packages yesterday, and there are probably 10 or so left to go out today. It has been so awesome to clear out space in our house! Purging all of this stuff has become an obsession haha

LOVING: I was tempted to say this weather again... and I guess that's true. I'm so glad Dogwood winter is over because I don't think my body could take another cold snap. This week's cold front has seriously rattled my body like crazy. I'm ready for full-blown Spring... which in Tennessee really means higher humidity and sticky air. But I'll take it! I'm crossing my fingers that we're only 2 or 3 weeks out from pool weather, too!

ATTEMPTING: to plan out the rest of the nursery in my head. I have so many ideas and plans and crafts that I want to do, but only so much patience! haha I know the baby won't give a hoot if he has a cohesive nursery theme or whatever, but I've loved every minute of the planning process so far. It's starting to sort of fall into place (as much as it can with only one piece of furniture, that is!) and I'm loving the outcome!

WANTING: to convince Mike a "babymoon" isn't a total waste of cash. Sadly he starts school in less than 2 weeks and we already have plans for his Summer vacation, so unless we were to magically jet off in the next few days, a babymoon simply won't be happening. I guess I should channel all of this energy elsewhere then, huh? haha

What are you up to today?
If you're looking for something to do, share your own Currently post on your blog and leave a link to it below! I'd love to know how you're spending your day! (Currently post inspired by Danielle's feature!)


  1. The cold snap we had this week definitely sucked. It's been such a weird spring. I feel like I didn't get to enjoy any of the dogwoods or cherry blossoms because there were so many cold days. I think Spring is finally here to stay.

  2. over here in Canada we had a few glorious days of warmth and sunshine and we all rejoiced in the beautiful wonder of spring, i started making plans to plant flowers in the gardens, walking my dogs and photography in the park. Then all of a sudden we got hail, snow and rain, rivers are overflowing, flooding everywhere, and a huge drop in temperatures... Fingers crossed for spring to "re-hit" us and hopefully yours shows up to!

  3. My neti pot is my saving grace during pregnancy. Sure, it sounds strange but once you use it you'll wonder why you waited so long!

    1. I've contemplated buying one on many occasions... maybe I'll break down and do it!

  4. I love all your pregnancy pictures, too cute.
    And the nursery is really coming along can't wait to read more.
    I'm currently scratching my head wondering where April went, it's going by so fast!

  5. Warmth needs to come soon, it even snowed this past week where I live! My go to meal is PB&J or cereal, I can't cook at all, thank goodness my boyfriend does all that for me.

  6. Seconding the netti pot! Though, if you think it really is a serious infection and not allergies etc. maybe call your physician to discuss. Those don't go away.

    1. Turns out I have a fun little thing called strep throat! Yuck :( Crossing my fingers it bails this weekend!

  7. I love the constellation idea! That is awesome.

    Also "cheeky selfie" = love it.

    Also ALSO I have rediscovered peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Like, I haven't eaten them with any regularity in YEARS. Pregnancy happens and suddenly I want them for lunch like you wouldn't believe. Thank God for prenatal vitamins, girl.

    1. haha right?! I didn't eat my first PB&J until I was 18 (real talk), but now I crave them. So strange!

  9. Oh, I just started reading The Art Of Possibility! I ordered it after watching a TEDtalk with Benjamin Zander that gave me goosebumps! :)

    You make a precious little pregnant lady!

    Amy (the girl with Kurt Halsey sleeve ;) )

  10. Pretty mama!
    Sorry you feel yucky!
    Do you have a juicer? I find ginger/apple/carrot and lemon juice helps so much!
    Feel better x


HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
